Fayose has become APC tool, says PDP chieftain


A  prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party in Oyo State, Mr Dare Adeleke,  has accused former Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, of being used by by some leaders of the All Progressives Congress to cause crisis in the opposition party.

Adeleke appealed to the former governor and his loyalists  to leave the PDP and  join their   paymasters in the APC instead of working to destroy the party.

Adeleke, in a statement made available to journalists in Ibadan on Wednesday, also warned Fayose stop disparaging the name of  former Osun State Governor,  Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola.

Adeleke spoke  following a controversial press release credited to Fayose in which the latter made some allegations on decisions within the South-West PDP.

The statement read: “The National Working Committee of the party should, as a matter of urgency, warn Ayo Fayose and his cohorts to stop disturbing the peace of its members. He can, as well, move to the APC.”

It further stated that the PDP family was miffed at the press release published by some on-line news platforms, which is creating discomfiture within the party particularly in the state.

The statement, which berated Fayose of masterminding crises in the party, read that it is denigrating to describe a substantive caretaker Chairman of the party as former.

It added: “The power to suspend or remove an official in that position under the PDP Constitution is that of the National Executive Committee, specifically, the NWC on behalf of the NEC. One wonders if they have never read the constitution or they are just a bunch of reckless mutineers.

“Ayo Fayose, in his greed for power and desperation to betray the party, is trying to balkanize the party and, in the process, turn the South-West zone into a Banana Republic.

“It is bizarre and a misnomer for Fayose to bestow the position of Zonal Media Co-ordinator on his servant boy, Lere Olayinka. As a matter of fact, it is laughable. In what capacity does he have the right to appoint Lere Olayinka as spokesperson?

“It is also unpalatable that these trouble makers had to mention General Olagunsoye Oyinlola (retd.) in their infamous and libelous release. Accusing him of getting contracts from Governor Seyi Makinde is another level of how low Fayose is descending.”
